This is a must have for any teacher of Reading. It’s a reading diagnosis and intervention handbook. Beginning and experienced teachers alike find the assessment resources and tools they need to document a child’s strengths and areas of need–and get effective instructional strategies to teach skills that are missing. Locating and Correcting Reading Difficulties is organized around the sub-skills of reading and fits well with most major reading programs currently in use. Below is a rundown of the Table of Contents. This book has helped me greatly when I was teaching reading for elementary-middle school students. Enjoy!
